Palm Beach Regency Brought Exquisitely Up-To-Date Hits the Market for $17.8M

At the dawn of the new year, just nine days ago, this extensively renovated Palm Beach regency-style property, hit the market for an eye-watering $17.8 million. Originally built in 1970, every inch of the house looks like it's brand-spankin' new, decorated gorgeously, to the umpteenth degree. It's listed by Christopher Leavitt, one of the brokers on the short-lived reality show Million Dollar Listing Miami (boy that feels like a million years ago), which explains what he's doing with his time these days. He must have absconded from Miami. Zillow says most of his listings are that-a-way.

This immaculately preserved and restored palazzo in the heart of Morningside, the City of Miami's first historic district, was built in 1926.

Star Island’s $40 Million Yacht Club Mansion is Still on the Market After Three Years

There could be something funky about the house. Certainly the combination of original Med Revival architectural details, and modern-day alterations that don't quite seamlessly duplicate the quality of the house, might make it look a little off. But this massive $40 million house has stuck on the market for three years more likely because, well, it's a sluggish market.

Iconic Miami Architect Kenneth Treister’s Home is For Sale, Although it’s Changed a Bit
